36 NZ Pacific oysters, half shell

200g fresh watermelon, 10mm thick slices & skin removed

Chilli lime dressing 

80ml lime juice

2 small red chillis, seeds removed and finely diced

½ clove  fresh garlic, minced

1 tbsp fish sauce

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp vegetable oil

This is the perfect dish for summer get-togethers. The smoky flavour of the BBQ complements the oysters, while the cooling watermelon offers a refreshing balance to the chilli lime dressing.

  1. Place all ingredients except the watermelon and oysters in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk to combine then store in an airtight container.
  3. Pat dry the watermelon with a paper towel. Pre-heat the BBQ hot plate or heavy based fry pan.
  4. Lightly brush the watermelon with a small amount of oil and grill on the BBQ till slightly charred.
  5. Remove the watermelon from the heat and allow to cool.
  6. Cut the watermelon into medium dices.
  7. Place a small amount on each oyster and then dress with the lime chilli dressing.
